    ...an inter-war flight sim?

    I mean, the FB engine is far from dead. I think a flight sim that features fighters from the '20s and '30s would go over well. There could be all sorts of fictional scenerios.

    Just for fun, you know.

    That'd be great. A lot of crap plane fans like myself would be in heaven if such a sim were done.

    Let us finish this one first I'm not even thinking of anything beyond today right now.

    But to be honest with you, a 20s-30s project doesn't appeal to me that much. Maybe a 1946 war between USSR and USA, that's a hypothetical scenario I could be excited about.

    Oh gees. Who exactly is going to fly a prototype Japanese aircraft in a US vs Russia scenario? Most importantly, just who exactly would finish flight testing it and then manufacture it?

    I have a friend that is working on a BattleField 1942 add-on that is post-war USA vs. USSR.

    I think its freeware too.

    It doesn't have to be ficticious:

    How about the Spanish Civil War?

    Or Nomonhan / Khalkhin-Gol incident?

    IIRC some guys in Russia have licenced Oleg's map-making software and are working on a free add-on of Nomonhan/Khalkhin-Gol.

    Technically, it's where the Pacific war should start, as that's where the Japanese first started.

And 1930s China vs Japan too, where Chennault saw his early experience that later made him Famous, when he first saw hidden weakness in the Japanese.

    Indeed, a combined Spain and China sim, possibly combined with 1939 Poland, would involve aircraft designing
    Nation on Earth.

    USA, Brit, USSR, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, Poland, etc... endless list.

    Chinese used German He~111.
